What Is Russia Turning Into?

I saw my first corpse a couple of days ago. I was walking home from the metro to my new place. Just my luck, I decided to rent on the same street where there are about 7 migrant shops all clustered together. The old Russian man that was lying on the asphalt was in the “paradnaya” arc right next to these migrants’ shops. He had blood around his mouth that had dribbled into his beard. He lay on his back, sprawled out. A helpful civilian slapped him a bit to see if he would wake up. No cordon sanitaire in Russia. And no response. The police officer started rifling through his pockets, white latex gloves on, looking for clues. He pulled out a prescription bottle, unscrewed it and sniffed it. Nope, that wasn’t it. The day had started so well. I was in the metro and I saw a darky being harassed by the police. It was a sight for sore eyes. I had seen similar scenes when I had first arrived in St. Petersburg three years ago. And about two years ago there was a massive clean-up. Several of their massive markets were raided and permanently shut down. Like the Sennaya Square market next to where I lived then. Meanwhile, they were getting accosted left and right by 6-foot tall White policemen with batons and blue camo to be hauled away to the station. I told my friends in the states about it and I would talk about how great it was, the city was actually getting whiter, not darker and it was happening right before my eyes. In fact, one day I was walking down the street when policemen started running straight at me and barked out an order to STOP. I froze and my heart skipped a beat, but they whooshed on by and grabbed a swarthy fellow right behind me and started demanding his papers. It was a glorious day. I imagined if Trump won that it would become a common sight all over the United States as well. But then things got worse. I’ve certainly noticed it in the past year. There are more and more of them and I haven’t seen any of them getting in any trouble with the police. Today was different. The Uzbek (or whatever) in the metro. Then right outside the same metro stop, there was a migrant fruit stand next to a Shawarma stand that sold fresh southern produce out of a van that was surrounded today by the police as I walked by. So far so good. Then right across the street was the dead man. All of a sudden, the pieces fell into place. Of course, it may not have been them. Just like it may not have been an Uzbek that blew up the St. Petersburg metro. People were saying it might have been a Ukrainian terrorist. But I knew. And I think I know this time as well. At the very least, I hope the police will be very harsh. I hope they won’t get bribed out of acting on this. In related news, Sputnik i Pogrom, a nationalist Russian website was shut down. There were other nationalist sites that were shut down recently as well. I was never a reader of Sputnik i Pogrom. Despite their massive reach in Russia, they seemed to be fringe within an already rather nationalistic society. I found that I agree on almost all doctrinal points of the Alt-Right even with normal Peterburgians and Moscovites. Hell, even the Communists seemed pretty on point about the JQ, about international finance and the war against the White world. They just liked Stalin and thought Hitler was an Anglo shill. Which is an interesting argument to say the least. I met up with pro-Putin nationalists from the Rodina party as well. They knew about the Alt-Right and were good on all the points. They just couched their points in different-sounding words. “Globalists and bankers” for the usual suspects. Once again, to review, they are: White advocacy Counter-Semitism Traditional worldview I had even read some Liberal in the Moscow Times kvetching that Russia was a Fascist country that lacked a Fascist leader. He made the point that the people were more to the Right than Putin, who was more of a manager-leader and a classical liberal. The Sputnik i Pogrom people were some of the weakest on the JQ, which I found out after chatting with one of their writers. A lot of them are just racist liberals. But to be fair, Kirill Kaminets is pretty much 14/88. All in all, the situation seemed good. I gotta say, even Putin’s party seemed decent. They had a massive propaganda campaign promoting a healthy birth rate and offering government subsidies for large families. The posters had smiling blond, White families on them. There was no Dindus with White women or people in Hijabs in the propaganda effort. Functionally, Putin was promoting pro-White policies. And no, Russia’s rising birthrate isn’t due to Muslims. Just ask Anatoly Karlin. In general, there are two types of Nationalists in Russia, those that support Putin and those that don’t. Both have fallen on hard times. It seems that after the spark of nationalism that was needed to retake Crimea, someone has decided to dial it all back. It was a heady time, but it seems to be coming to an end with the 2018 elections coming up. The regime is worried. Should they be? I don’t know. They will lose St. Petersburg and Moscow to the office plankton, but the provinces will back up Putin no matter what. To be fair, he has done a lot of good for them. So what is the concern? Probably the regime fears a Maidan scenario. Liberals protesting corruption for the cameras at the front, armed nationalist muscle in the back. So they are clamping down. Once again, I defer to Anatoly’s take on the situation. The only half-way conceivable way in which the […]
